In light of recent #MeToo revelations and developments, this question asked about a range of women's issues. The previous speaker referred to me as "Pro-Life," so I began by explaining why I prefer the terms "whole life," "consistent life," or "respecting life."

Another hot topic was guns. This forum came the day after the Parkland, Florida, high school shooting. I had spent a good portion of the day discussing school shootings and gun issues with my own junior high classes. Looking back, much has changed on this issue in just the past six weeks.
